Evans-Novak Report Shutting Down

By on 1.22.09 | 1:02PM

Sad news for conservatism when what we really need is more investigative reporting. From Tim Carney:

Now, most people ask me, what is happening to the venerable Evans-Novak Political Report. Sadly, after more than 40 years, this publication, launched in 1967 by Rowland Evans and Bob Novak, is folding. Next week's will be the final issue. After Novak's illness forced his retirement, the reins were handed over to me. With the personnel changes and the market changes, Eagle has decided to retire the publication.

I worked at ENPR for 2 weeks as a fill-in researcher/reporter. David Freddoso and Tim Carney cut their teeth under Novak for years -- making them two of the brightest lights for conservative reporting inside the beltway. Hopefully, other publications will learn from Novak's important example of what it means to have a real impact.
